More than 750,000 sq ft has been built out at Whitehills

Wareing delivers for Henco

The steel frame specialist has completed a 20,000 sq ft building at Whitehills Business Park in Blackpool for the Lancastrian developer and investor.

The building at the Cropper Close site is split into two units: the first, of 8,000 sq ft with an additional 2,000 sq ft of mezzanine space, has been let to gift and toy business Floss & Rock, which will move in later this year.

The remaining unit spans 12,000 sq ft, also offering the option of additional mezzanine offices, and could be further split into two separate units of 5,000 sq ft and 7,000 sq ft.

This is the latest in a series of projects that Preston-based Wareing has completed on behalf of Henco, which has been operating on the Fylde coast for more than 35 years.

Previous Henco developments at Whitehills include six units at Apollo Court in 2013 totalling 12,000 sq ft, a four-unit development on Brooklands Way in 2017 as well as nine units at Juniper Court in 2018 totalling 13,000 sq ft.

Simon Tickle, estimator at Wareing Buildings, said: “Since the first spade was put into the ground on Apollo Court in 2013, we have worked in partnership to develop spaces that will serve to drive forward the commercial sector in the region and make the area a thriving business hub.

“This latest project once again offers something new to occupants, and we look forward to seeing which other exciting businesses take advantage.”

Around 750,000 sq ft of commercial space has now been built out at Whitehills, Henco managing director Chris Hibbert said.
